Betty Sorensen

Betty Boterman Sorensen, 76, of Sioux Falls, passed away Saturday, October 29, 2016. Betty was born July 23, 1940, to LuVerne and Ethel (Leeper) Boterman in her grandparents' home in rural Viborg. On November 15, 1968, Betty married Ronald Sorensen. They lived in Baltic for a short time before moving to Dell Rapids to raise their three children. She was a homemaker before fulfilling a life-long dream to be a hair stylist and then running her own salon, Cut n' Curl. In 1991, they moved to Brookings, South Dakota and lived there for fourteen years. Betty worked as a hair stylist at the Carousel salon.

Following the loss of Ron in 2004, Betty moved to Sioux Falls, South Dakota to be closer to her children and grandchildren. She was currently a hair stylist at Dow Rummel Village.

Betty's passions were music, family, sewing, and gardening. She is one the founding members of the Dakota Opry. Betty grew up in a very musical family, learning to play keyboard and sing at a young age.

Grateful for having shared Betty's life are her children, Brian (Maureen) Buller, Sioux Falls, Nita (Gary) Mehlbrech, Sioux Falls, and Ronda (Alan) Roemen, Tea; seven grandchildren, Christopher (Laura) Buller, Danielle Wilcox, Alyssa Buller, Brynn Roemen, Ryan Wilcox, Taylor Roemen, and Kamdyn Roemen; three great-grandchildren, Dawson, Payton, and Gannon Buller; brothers, Donald (Nancy) Boterman, Oliver (Lorna) Boterman, and twin sister, Barbara Alley.
